You’re healing your body doing those water workouts because now you’re in bathers that fit right and give you the coverage and support you need.
Walking into a store or shopping online for a swimsuit and know exactly what to look for, what to buy, and what to avoid. No more wasting precious time and money.

Understanding Your Shape.

Swimsuit Design Essentials.
Style continues as you learn how to match the features of your Shape to that of a swimsuit.

You’ll learn how prints play a masterful role in how a swimsuit looks on and the right prints to bring out your best.

It’s essential to know what we’ve covered in Modules 1-4 but the icing on the cake is understanding the best colours for you to wear, that will make you feel fabulous and look fabulous on you too. We’ll explore basic colour palettes and the impact understanding your style personality has on what swimsuit you’ll choose. I’m looking at you Leopard print lovers!

I’m Anita McLachlan. Some call me the Swimsuit Whisperer, the Cossie Whisperer. For over 13 years I’ve helped 1000’s of women reclaim their swimsuit confidence with the right fitting swimsuit.
For the past 6 years, myself and a Crew of 23 everyday women have empowered other women to live their summers, no holding back, with our Cossie Confidence movement and campaigns.
I lead a membership community, The Summer Confidence Society, that transforms women from feeling invisible to being confident in a swimsuit and beyond. The results have been amazing as they master their personal Style, Mindset and Wellness.
And now, I want to offer some of those learnings, that experience in the Unlock Your Cossie Confidence course. The essentials to set you up for a sensational summer.
I get it. You’ve been putting the needs of others before your own for so long, you’ve lost your summer style mojo.
The last time you bought bathers you really felt great in, seems a distant memory. So where do you begin?
Maybe you’ve had a few goes yourself but they haven’t hit the mark, wasting your precious time and money.
You're tired of sitting on the sidelines, watching on in the hot sun, while others enjoy their time together, making memories you wished you were making with them.
Enough is enough. It’s time to get that swimsuit, get it right and dive into life. Do the things that bring you joy.
You know the right swimsuit is something you need to have, to do more of that.
There's no better time than now.
It's time. I'm ready.
THIS COURSE GETS RESULT
Don't take my word for it. This is what Barbara and Fiona have to say about Unlock Your Cossie Confidence.
Hi Anita. I really enjoyed taking your course. I was a bit unsure of spending the money at first but I was wanting to do something for ME.
It was amazing to see your Sequin and Sand ladies in their cossies. They were not skinny models and yet they look so happy and beautiful in their swimsuits. That really gave me a lot of confidence that just maybe... I could be like them. And now after your course.... I AM.
I was not sure to start off with what a course on wearing a cossie could really do for me..... but i'm so very glad I went for it. Anita, you are such a sweet, caring and energizing lady. Working with you one on one and in our small group was amazing. You and your course gave me courage to step out of my safe zone and to try something different. I never thought I could wear any other swimsuit except one with a skirt..... But I love my one piece swimsuit and my two piece swimsuit both without a skirt.
Hey ladies.... if you are unsure of wearing a cossie and getting out amongst people. Do this course. It will give you confidence, open your eyes, mind and heart. YOU CAN DO THIS. LOVE YOURSELF AS YOU ARE. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
More than cossies
After another summer spent on the side of the pool, watching everybody else enjoying themselves, I’d had enough. I was sick and tired of sitting on the deck, and whenever I did launch into the water, I didn’t look, or feel, like me. I grabbed whatever would fit; boardshorts and a rashie. That would do. Until it didn’t and I wasn’t happy. I stumbled on Anita’s Masterclass and immediately signed up for the Cossie Confidence course. Initially, it wasn’t what I expected, but I listened when Anita said to ‘keep an open mind’. There was work to be done. Otherwise, I’d just be buying a cossie and never wearing it. Nothing would have changed.
So, I did the work. The printable work sheets allowed me to clarify and address my personal issues. And sure, not everything appealed to me, but Anita offered alternatives. The Zoom calls and private group provided plenty of time for questions and Anita was always ready to assist.
Think of how much money you’ve wasted on swimsuits left in your wardrobe, or how much enjoyment you’ve skipped sitting on the sidelines. And let me tell you, this is more than just swimsuits; these modules provide a confidence overhaul. The benefits have spread into other areas of my life. After completing this course and applying the lessons, I am confident about wearing my new cossie. I’m excitedly anticipating summer.
They don’t call Anita the ‘Cossie Whisperer’ for nothing.

"...putting my cossies on, looking and feeling good, bring it on..."
"Thank you so much for helping me to turn my life around, I always have a wonderful break when on holidays with my family but now it will be exceptional, so much more fun putting my cossies on, looking and feeling good, bring it on.
Thank you again Anita for all the love support and help, looking so forward to 2022, no looking back we are not going that way."

"...possible to participate in my life, rather than watch it from the sidelines..."
"I have your beach shirts, swim leggings, linen dress, bathers from last year, sarong wraps, beach hats. And you know what? I feel and look hot. I can actually take my kids swimming and join in rather than the look and feel like a self conscious blob on the sand.
You don't know how much your truly beautiful clothes have made it possible to participate in my life, rather than watch it from the sidelines."
Krista (via email)
"...clearly passionate about women's body confidence..."
"It is so refreshing to be able to purchase with confidence from a company that is clearly passionate about women's body confidence no matter what shape and size we are, and the amount of details, tips and product explanation you have provided is phenomenal. I no longer feel burdened or alone by worrying about what I look like in swimmers so a BIG THANK YOU to you and our team. I'm telling everyone about your store!"
Petra (via email)
"...I stood in front of the mirror and started to weep..."
"I received my swimsuit 2 days after ordering..wow! I stood in front of my mirror modelling my new bathers and started to weep...a decade of swimming in shorts and t shirt or avoiding swimming altogether and now I’m in my perfect swimsuit feeling and looking divine. I've never been so excited for summer. This is a game changer..THANKYOU!"
Adelina (via email)
"...but you make me feel okay about it..."
"See what you've done to me!! I used to be the person with the horrible old one and only boring swimsuit, worn year in and year out till it fell off. Now here I am taking 3 possibly 4 swimsuits to Bali!! Am I being greedy - well of course but you make me feel okay about it and all your gorgeous swimmers, I just can't resist.
Thanks for all your help Anita.
